We have been educating children in Manchester for over 35 years.
We offer grades K-9 and are fully accredited by the state of Kentucky and by the National Council of Private Schools Association.
We offer individually-tailored, differentiated, and hands-on learning experiences, as well as educational and cultural field trips, e.g.
concerts, musicals, Civil War reenactments, plays, museums, to local artisans, farms, outdoor school, musical festivals, service learning, etc.
Our goal is to graduate young people who have a balanced education in all areas: academic, spiritual, physical, emotional, and social.
